RunLog – Thursday – May 13, 2021

Planned Workout Description:  Do an easy 1-mile run to warm up and to see how the Achilles is progressing today. If the Achilles isn’t too grumpy, do 10 x 2:00 minutes running, with 2:00 minutes walking, with a 5:00 minute walking cool-down—easy effort level on the run portions. Warm-up: My minimum warm-up is the leg swing routine x 20, 40 air squats, 100-ups before running, and … Continue reading RunLog – Thursday – May 13, 2021

A Little Progress is Good News – RunLog 5/10/21

Today was my first run in quite a while. I ran for almost 25:00 consecutive minutes with just a short pause at the top of Stevens Hill to catch a breath before finishing where the tar starts about 200 yards from the upper gate. Which is progress! The leg is coming along slowly but surely, and I think that the ASICS Evoride 2s that I … Continue reading A Little Progress is Good News – RunLog 5/10/21

Run #2 in the Rehab Cycle – RunLog 4/26/21

The winds keep coming pretty steady around 20 mph, with gusts just a tad higher at times. I braved them to get out and do my 16 x 1:00 with 2:00 recoveries rehab workout this morning. I was looking forward to this run, so a bit of wind wouldn’t stop me from getting out the door, especially with the sun shining. However, I was happy … Continue reading Run #2 in the Rehab Cycle – RunLog 4/26/21

100% Humidity Made it Interesting – RunLog July 3, 2020

I knew that this run was going to be tough, the humidity takes it toll on me, more than it used to, but the temps were decent, it was overcast or a light mist at times, so I figured 5.0 miles would be about as far as I would want to go today. The Run Planned run and focus: Middle Road Loop and strides after. … Continue reading 100% Humidity Made it Interesting – RunLog July 3, 2020

ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

The ASICS GlideRide is probably the closest I will get to a super shoe this year and it is one that is becoming a bit of an enigma for me. As I go over 200 miles in them, they are showing a bit of a split personality. The first 175 miles or so, I was in love with the GlideRides. They were doing everything that … Continue reading ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Okay, the mosquitoes have hatched around us and the dragonflies have not, so for a while the little winged terrors have unmatched superiority of the skies. Nasty little buggers they are too this year. However, with the high humidity (for Maine) when you swat one on an exposed skin part, it stays there as a trophy to your skill as a mosquito hunter, to go … Continue reading Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

May everyone be safe and remember Memorial Day as something more than a day to party hearty. Remember those who have served and especially those who did not come home alive to their families and friends. They and their families paid the ultimate sacrifice. Writing about my running on Memorial Day feels kind of awkward in some ways because it would not seem to many … Continue reading Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

Pepin Test Course – RunLog May 22, 2020

One thing about all this pandemic stuff going on is that while I do have a schedule, at times remembering what day it actually kind of slips away to something that ain’t all that important – other than it is Friday which means a shorter, but something with a faster element thrown into the run at some point or a course time trial. I know … Continue reading Pepin Test Course – RunLog May 22, 2020
